    With the TRU sale I'm trying to decide between these two purchases...

    Universe Silverbolt
    Universe Onslaught
    Universe Powerglide
    Universe Treadbolt
    Universe Blaster

    ~60.00

    Or

    Encore Sky Lynx
    ~50.00

    I've personally never been interested in Sky Lynx. Those universe figures are decent to good updates of their characters and if you don't have the mold for any of them, I would without a doubt recommend them. Plus it seems like Sky Lynx is always on sale and no one buys him.

    ^This. I have all of those universe figures, except Silverbolt, and I can easily say that they're worth it, especially at half price. You can always grab Sky Lynx at around that price, but it's unlikely you'll find all of those figures (new) for that price.

    Get Onslaught, Darkwind, Silverbolt and Powerglide. If you ask, I'm sure they will price match the exclusives, or at least they did for one of the members here.

    Universe. Also I gotta agree, if you can get the manager at your local TRU to match the price(wasn't easy)on the exclusives, I'd get Darkwind instead.

    Shit, get both(Countdown)if you can, instead of Powerglide and wait for the WalMart exclusive G1 repaint.

    And damn dude, I want that chick in your sig! BAD.

    Get Onslaught and Silverbolt now, but wait on Powerglide until the red Wal-Mart exclusive version comes out. Pass on the repaint Voyagers, though, and save the money for later.

    Universe toys, easily. Sky Lynx is going to be around for awhile still and the clearance price on it has dropped a couple of times already, so if you just wait you might get a better deal on it. Getting 5 Universe toys for ~$12 each, though, is a bargain that can't be passed up.

    Nice. You're going to have fun when that arrives. Congratulations!

    I'm sorry, but I can relate. I think everyone on this forum can relate to this feeling. But you can get Dropshot and Blaster from TRU.com! Dropshot Blaster
